GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) - The South Carolina Department of Transportation said they will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday morning to mark the completion of the final bridge of the 85-385 Gateway Project in Greenville County.

The ribbon-cutting coincides with the opening of the new exit ramp from I-385 South onto Woodruff Road.

A detour remains in place Thursday through early Friday morning for I-385 South drivers trying to access Woodruff Road. Traffic must instead turn around at the Butler Road exit and access Woodruff Road via I-385 North.

Construction will continue into early 2020, but officials said the new bridge is the final major structure of the project.
